It’s no secret that interest in nootropics has been exploding over the past couple years.

Piracetam - The First Nootropic

Piracetam – The First Nootropic

It’s hard to have a conversation about nootropics without at least mentioning piracetam. After all, it was the creation of piracetam that inspired the creation of the word nootropic.

Piracetam is a safe and effective nootropic that has been around for a long time. And, unlike many newer nootropics, it has decades of research behind it to support its safety and efficacy.

The nootropic benefits of piracetam can include increased focus, improved mood, and reduced anxiety. And, when taken daily, it can improve blood clotting1, reduce the symptoms of depression and anxiety2, and treat breath-holding spells in affected individuals3.

We’re gonna look at the benefits, side effects, dosage, and history of this fascinating substance. But first, let’s look at what exactly piracetam is.

What Nootropic Should I Try First?

The popularity of using nootropics has been exploding over the past few years. More and more people are using these unique drugs to increase focus, motivation, memory, improve mood, and reduce anxiety.

I’ve been asked the following question more times than I can remember: “What nootropic should I try first?”

Coluracetam

Coluracetam is a nootropic that has been getting a lot of attention from the medical community and from nootropics users. This is a supplement that is likely to become very popular in the coming years.

Of all the nootropics that are available today, this is one of the newer ones. It was created in 2005 by the Japanese pharmaceutical company Mitsubishi Tanabe. They first synthesized it by modifying the well known nootropic, piracetam. The patent for this unique compound was transferred to the company BrainCells, Inc. They are a company that provides drugs to treat central nervous system diseases.

BrainCells, Inc. are currently conducting clinical testing for coluracetam. So far, the research has been very promising. Coluracetam shows great potential to treat certain central nervous system disorders as well as optic nerve and retinal damage.

Phenylpiracetam - The Best Adderall Alternative

Phenylpiracetam – The Best Adderall Alternative

When people find out that I have a lot of experience with nootropics, there are a few questions that always seem to come up. One question that comes up often is “Are there any nootropic alternatives to Adderall?”

The answer is yes, there is. And it’s called phenylpiracetam. It is easily the best alternative to Adderall. It provides similar improvements in focus, mood, energy level, memory, and motivation. However, it doesn’t have anywhere near as many side effects. And, compared to Adderall, the potential for addiction is much, much less.

The popularity of phenylpiracetam is steadily increasing. More and more people are using it as a substitute for Adderall. I, myself, have used it as a substitute for Adderall. It provides all of the focus-enhancing and mood-boosting effects, but without the overstimulated feeling that I sometimes get with Adderall.

If you’re looking for a recreational drug that will get you high, this isn’t it. But if you are looking for a safer and equally effective alternative to Adderall, then you’re looking for phenylpiracetam.

Oxiracetam - A Safe and Effective Nootropic

Oxiracetam – A Safe and Effective Nootropic

The use of nootropics has steadily been gaining in popularity over the past few years. It is a new and exciting world that is largely unexplored. And, like anything unexplored, there are always going to be unknown risks.

Many of the newer nootropics have not been scientifically studied in humans yet. Most of them are probably safe for most people to use. But there is no way of knowing if they have any unknown side effects.

One nootropic that has been extensively studied in humans is oxiracetam. What really stands out with this potent nootropic is its safety profile. Oxiracetam has been shown to be very safe, even when used at extremely high doses for long periods of time.

Now, I’m not advocating high dose oxiracetam use. But if you’re looking for a powerful nootropic that has been shown to be safe over and over again, then oxiracetam might be right for you.
